Parent Association


 Macau Anglican College Parent School Association

The Parent School Association was formed in November 2004 to increase interaction between parents and the school, to assist the school in developing educational and fund raising activities, and give comments on and suggestions about the school’s environment, plan, management and organization.

Membership of the Association is open to all parents and teachers. Parents are asked to pay an annual membership fee (currently-MOP 50 per child). Teachers are exempted from the fee. Fees are usually collected at the start of the year before the Annual General Meeting and many parents make an additional donation to the Association.

The Association is officially registered with the Government and money collected on behalf of the Association is handled through an Association Bank Account operated by any two of three office bearers’ signatures (Chairman, Vice Chairman and Treasurer). Funds are derived from membership subscription, donations made during events and Government sponsored activities. The Association has no paid staff and all monies collected are used to buy extra books or equipment for the school or fund activities for the benefit of students and parents. Activities range from arranging trips and outings for students, to drama shows in the school, regular monthly seminars for parents on parenting and educational enhancement skills. Extra equipment purchased for the school has included, library books, sports equipment, walkie talkies for sports day and gas barbecue sets for use in the school. The school office staff collect mail on behalf of the Association and help with liaison.

Annual General Meeting

An Annual General Meeting is held at the start of the new school year in the school hall. The Association Committee gives a report on the activities over the past year and presents the accounts. Every second year (2010, 2012 e.t.c.) members are elected to form a management committee to run the Association and a supervisory committee to handle any complaints should they arise.

Management Committee

The management committee meets usually once a month 7pm on a week day in the school conference room. The meetings discuss matters of interest and planning for coming advents. Minutes are kept. Any members are generally welcome to attend. Up to 21 members can be elected to the Management Committee. Key office bearers are the Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. The School Principal and Assistant Principals usually attend meetings. It is desirable that the Secretary can read and write both English and Chinese to enhance liaison with expatriate staff and the majority of Chinese speaking parents. The minutes are kept in Chinese and English.

Supervisory Committee

Up 7 members can be elected as members of the supervisory committee to handle any complaints against the management committee and to audit the accounts. Members of the supervisory committee often take part in the management committee meetings. There are two office bearers a Chairman and a Vice-Chairman.
